Indiana Can't 'Cope' With Chris and Company
A night after the Bulls had gone home after being down 3-1 only to end their season and lose their series in five games, some NBA fans across the globe thought it would be the same for the Knicks. Unfortunately, to the dismay of Indiana fans, there will be a Game 6 for the Knicks. Their fans still believe the series can go to seven after a great performance by rookie Chris Copeland. Here is what he had to say after the game about his performance:
"It is a blessing. I am extremely excited I was able to have an impact on the game. I hope I can do it again next game."
Pacers’ coach Frank Vogel also recognized Copeland’s key role in the game:
"I'm not surprised by his performance. We thought we'd see him some in the series. We know he's a terrific offensive player, a good player all the way around. You can't let him go and get threes."
The question now is: Will the Pacers shut down the Knicks in Game 6 or be man enough and bring the series back to where it started - New York?
